Rockfax Description
A superb route that is high in the grade. Start on the left where a crack splits a flat wall.
1) 4c, 40m. Follow the striking crack to a crozzly area of rock and trend slightly right up past bulges. Turn a final tricky bulge/overlap on the left to reach a ledge.
2) 5a, 28m. Follow the wide crack above to a steep flake. Move right into a faint scoop, turn the bulge on the right to enter a thin crack which is follow to a ledge and belay. © Rockfax

I lead pitch 1 as far as the steep crux 1.5 m below the first scoop / cave, just managed to fix a bomber No 3 wire but was totally pumped, very sustained route 4c almost every move with little rest. I lowered off and Ray lead through. I lead Pt2 (harder in the guide book at 5a)much the same sort of climbing but with some rests, I bypassed the crux going through the 2nd scoop by stepping right and then moving back left above the scoop, more hard climbing above the scoop, had to run it out past good gear placements as I couldn't stop long enough to place gear. very happy (and lucky on both pitches) not to have fallen off!

An interesting climb with a lot of in and outs (almost like coves/scoops between steep bits on first pitch).
